Great North 5k

Date & Location

Newcastle Quayside

Organiser’s Description

The perfect way to kick off one of the biggest sporting weekends in the North East, the day before the Great North Run. Starting on the Newcastle side of the River Tyne, the scenic route takes in two of the seven bridges spanning the river - the Swing Bridge and the Gateshead Millennium Bridge. Then stick around on the Newcastle/Gateshead Quayside for the Junior and Mini Run, the Pasta Party and the Great North CityGames.
